Works

With Joris van Midde, long term friend and artistic director of De Kwekerij, I started a new project called Cinematopé, which is specifically focussed on the creation of (short) films. A small collection of films and ideas can be seen on the website of De Kwekerij.

About Joost

 

Joost van Dijk (05-05-1970) is a self-taught solo multi-instrumentalist, composer, singer, and videographer/film maker based in Tilburg, The Netherlands.

'Not finding my flow in Art school (or any school, for that matter), I chose to go my own way and first started working as a visual artist.
Gradually, my life and inspiration took me more towards composing music and soundscapes and until now I have composed, recorded and edited music, soundscapes and soundeffects for theatre, dance and film for over 20 years, as well as performing in various art- and theatreprojects, and more recent as singer songwriter.
Over the years, I’ve started combining this with my original visual aspirations also doing filming; commissioned works as well as my own.


With my music as well as with my visual works, I let sensitivity, feeling and atmosphere prevail over technical details and intellectual complexity and let chance and improvisation play together freely and in balance with detail and precision.

I have been doing commissioned filming / photography, editing and music & sound design for:

De Kwekerij location theatre, Beeldjutters, Maarten BAAS, Sounding Bodies, Strijbos & van Rijswijk, Plastic Soup Foundation, Proefdiervrij, Celine Werkhoven, Het Zuidelijk Toneel, Australian director Samara Hersch, documentaries, dance company LaMelis, Studio Tween, Docman, dance-theatre company WELLES, Radio Nederland Wereldomroep, Teleac, independent artists, cultural organizations like 'L Avventura, business organizations like NIBAG Group and private artwork projects.

Both performing and filming have brought me to theatre stages, abandoned factories, nightly forests, high class hotels, festivals, funerals, exhibitions, fields of heather and cosy living rooms. I'm so grateful for being able to do what I do.’
